Very superstitious / Ladders 'bout to fall

If blogging has taught me anything, it's taught me that I'm superstitious. I often want to write about process or what I'm currently working on, but don't because I believe I'll jinx myself. So ridiculous! I know. Anyway, I want to tell you/talk to you about something I'm working on, a little part of my process, and I'm not going to. It's not you. It's me.

In other news, I'm eagerly anticipating Cynthia Huntington's forthcoming collection "Heavenly Bodies," which is the 2010 Editor's Selection Crab Orchard Poetry Series. (!)

I am also very pleased to have been invited to William Paterson University as a Guest Speaker -- I'll be reading from my manuscript-in-progress, answering questions, and leading a mini-workshop.

I don't know if I mentioned this on the blog, but I was recently appointed to my city's Cultural Commission. I was sworn in last night and attended my first meeting. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I came away motivated and excited about our next event, as well as with a long list of things to get accomplished before the next meeting.

But truly, the most important news I have to share with you is that my daughter starts Daisies next week. Girl Scouts Rule!
